l-'lrsl A unit rtf Hrpari of the S*»‘i'«T*rj of Ikr Horllnnd Frerilnien's AM AssOrMlion. Early during the rebellion various organiza tions sprang into life to uiiuister to a race sud denly delivered by the judgments ot war from a long oppression. They were for the most part without concert or definite modes of oc ii..u. During the last year they increased their efficiency by consolidation and cooperation, and greatly extended their operations both ill awakening the people of the North to a just sense ot the importance ot the work they have undertaken and in expending their enlarged contribution in the education of the freedmen uf the South. The record of the educational oi>ei ations of the year lias not been one of uni form success. While there have been scenes nf outrage and brutality, burning of school houses anil churches, persecution of male and female teachers, murders and massacres of in utfensive freedmen, all disclosing the essential barbarism which the long practice of slave lioiding has made the type of national charac ter in a large section of our country, there have liecii unexpected exhibitions of liberality and humanity in other quarters to encourage and help op the work of civilization and pacifica tion. As a general thing the religious denomi nations of the South have uot only sanctioned but aided the efforts of the Freediuon'sAidSo eieties to instruct Jlie people lately in slavery. Many enlightened planters have seen their best interest in promoting the education of their hired laborers so as to render their Tabor more valuable and their conduct as citizens more blameless. A more hostile feeling in the huge mass of the Southern people, partly a relic of slavery, partly the bitter chagrin and hatred grown out of an unsuccessful and not thoroughly punish ed rebellion, has been kept to some extent in check by the Freedmen’s Bureau, supported by i he sanctions of the Civil Rights Act, and the strong arm of military force wisely main tained in the disaffected region. Of course the task of carrying the simplest elements of knowledge in the spelling hook and reader to the children of a degraded peo ple, in the midst of the hatred of caste and the antipathy of one barbarous race for another, h is been anything but agreeable. It is a work that has uo attractions but for rare and heroic souls. Only such men and women as would make themselves martyrs for the testimony to a great truth, or heroes to lead their age in some upward struggle for freedom aud piogif Js, offer themselves lor such labors and sacrifices. Noth ing has happened, it is safe to say, during tin past year to daunt or turn hack spirits like these, who like angels of mercy have wandered over the dreary battle fields of the Smith to pour tlie oil of fraternal charity into the wounds of war. There has never yet, I be lieve, been an accumulation of funds in any of our treasuries, because there have been no he roic women ready to leave the refinements of New England homes to brave the perils ol'asiil try climate, anil the prejudices, threats and violence of unfriendly people in trying to ele vate a hated and oppressed race’ to such a knowledge of their rights and duties as shall exact from all other men a recognition of their equal humanity. anon alter me organization ui the Portland Freedmen’s Aid Association, its Executive Committee aud other officers went to work to raise funds to enable it to undertake its just share of the honor and toil of jhe great work ot converting into valuable citizens a race ol emancipated slaves. There were local organi zations iu aid of the Sanitary and Christian Commissions, which happened to be left at the close of the war with unexpended funds These, amounting to $500 from each society, they were readily induced to contribute to our treasury. The young ladies’ society, called "R. F.,’’ that had sprung into existence to aid the charities of the great war, not only gave us their funds, hut coutinued and ever increas ed their activities in adding largely to the same, contributing iu all ihe sum of $1275. The churches and clergy generally aided and encouraged our enterprise, aud several of the religious parishes had anticipated us in can vassing their own pews, and engaging and sending out toachers to the field. Late in the \ginter a fair was projected, and was most en ergetically, tastefully and liberally planned and conducted by the various committees of ladies aud gentlemen connected with all the different religious societies, and both the lead ing political parties, to whom the management of it had been committed. We have to congratulate ourselves at the good feeling and zeal with which the people of Portland, almost as a whole community and in the almost complete absence of sectarian prej udice, entered upon this noble enterprise. The work was not ouly good in its end, but effected good in its progress in bringing together into the most cordial relations, calculated to be"ct mutual respect our best people, too much ac customed to social connections aud benevolent efforts within the close circle ot an exclusive party, sect or clique. The proceeds of the fair paid into our treasury was $1.3,160.29. We re ceived from a society iu Westbrook $148.75, and from Otisfield $17.00. Liberal d. nations iu aid ot education of freedmen have also been taken up in State, Park and Chestnu. street cliurches anlT the First Parish, perhaps in some other parishes, that have not come into our treasury. From all these sources the revenue derived l'or the uses of our society, was more than $17,000. Considering this, the fruits of our ef fort in a single city of only 30,000 inhabitants for a period of ouly six months, it is apparent that our success lias not been equalled by another society in the country. At the close of an enthusiastic meeiiug of the National Freedman's Union Commission in New York, the other day, it was resolved -to raise in New York and vicinity $100,000 for the education of the freedmen. But New Y'ork and vicinity embraces a population of not less than a mil lion or thirty-three times the population of Portland. Should the wealthy city of New York contribute to the education of the ffeed men iu the proportion that Portland did last year, she would raise not $100,000 but more thau $500,000. By the time this fund came into our treasu ry too season was too far advanced for any new schools to be established. The older children were leaving the schools and goirnr to labor • upon the plantations. In most parts of the South it was deemed unsafe to peril the lives of our toachers by keeping schools open during the summer months. We were advised by the officers of societies that had more experience tnan we, to svilhcld our funds till the opening of another season. The engagements made with our own teach ers and those we had adopted, however, were promptly met. Thirty-five hundred dollars has been expended up to the present time in paying the salaries of these. One thousand dollars was sent to the Hon. John Lynch, last March, in response to a most moving call for succor to the unclothed and starvim^poor of Washington city, fugitives from eveiypart of the South during the war. Five thousand dol lars was advanced to the National Freeduien’s Union Commission, to be expended by them in paying expenses of schools under their super vision, and to be reimbursed to us upon call for the payment of our own teachers. A part of this has since been repaid and the balance will soon be drawn upon. Five hundred dollars | was advanced to tire society of the ladies of ' Portland to purchase materials for work to he . disposed of afterwards for the benefit of the general objects of the society. The account ot Hon. J. T. McCobb, the Treasurer, shows $1,621.63 was left in deposits on interest to be used for prosecuting vigorously during the • now opening season the work of continuing and multiplying our schools in the South. The number of teachers supported by our so ciety during the past year is twelve—ten fe males and two males. Some of these were sent out at the beginning of the school year, Oct 1,1865, others in the spring of 1866. The nm of $3500, which has been paid out of the funds of the society, for the support of the teachers, will pay their salaries up to July 1, 1800, the end of the school year. Our teachers have, with the exception of two, been found competent and faithful. These two have been withdrawn from the field and others substitut ed iu their places. Ou the 1st of October, 1866, we sent the same number of teachers into the field, aud the lunds in our treasury will enable us to support them during the coming year. One or two more teachers, whose expenses are partly paid from other sources will probably be sent iu a few days. me loresigm oi collecting so large a mini even wiser than we knew, for the occur rence of the great calamity that fell so sudden ly upon the city of Portland the memorable night of July 4th, iSdfl, necessarily turned our benevolent solicitude anff helpfulness in an other. direction nearer home. Very many of our citizens, whose generous hands had con tributed to aid every local and general charity, whose large gifts were already in our treasury, by the losses oi a single night, were made them selves the objects of charity. Others have been obliged to slip down from the category of large pains, and to devote perhaps the rest of their lives to the slow work of restoring a lost inde pendence; anil from those whose means have not been consumed in the conflagration, the claims of neighbors made houseless, flying from the ashes of all their earthly possessions, into tents and barracks, to be fed upon a table sup plied by gifts from all the generous hearts of tlie land, have been recognized as, for the time, more pressing than those even of the impover ished and ignorant l'reedmeu. In our present crippled condition, with scarce ly any of tlie resources by which we made our treasury last ysar available, we ought, perhaps, content ourselves with keeping good the num ber of our teachers, and we may congratulate ourselves that tiie untouched resources of our treasury will enable us to do this without any recurrence to the lilerality of the public. There is one department of ettort hitherto too much neglected, to which the organized efforts of this society might under the present circumstances be wisely directed. I mean the canvassing of this State, and the establish ment of auxiliary Freedmen’s £ ocieties in all our principal towns. This is properly the work of tlie State society, and to devise some plan of having it undertaken, a delegation of this society met the oflicers of the State and of one or two local societies last June at Au gusta. A full and very interesting conference was hold, disclosing a most hearty interest in the work on the part of the oflicers of tlie Slate society with whom we met. A plan of presenting the claims of the Freedmcn to the people of Maine in every considerable town by the agent of tlie State Society in connection willi some other able and eloquent public speakers was proposed, favorably entertained, and funds were pledged to carry it out. Noth ing, however, has yet been set in operation,—I am unable to say whether on account of the difficulty of finding and employing tlie right kind of canvassers, or whether our great and absorbing calamity soon after this meeting put ali other CuaectW bflt our own out of our thoughts, ami the State society lacking our Co* operation, and unable to collect together its too much scattered organization to concert any scheme of effort by itself, suffered the whole matter to subside in the rising excitement of a polit:cal campaign. The work, therefore, is yet to be done. While we are compelled to some extent, by a great calamity, to restrict our ouerations, other cities and towns that have been more tavored may well enter into our labors and hold our place in the ranks, while we are recovering from our wounds. Business during the last year has been prosperous. The strange, perhaps delu sive, commercial prosperity, begotten of a most costly and protracted war, contrary to gene ral exjiectatiou, has not yet been interrupted by a commercial revulsion. While all the channels of labor and trade are crammed to fulness with what passes as money, whatever is funded in a treat charitable institution for the education of the poor "wards of the nation, will remain and 3ield increasing dividends, even if our banks. <*ur railroads and our facto ries should tuniblo in an indiscriminate bank ruptcy.

Grant, Ellsworth — Eastern Packet Co. new si bp “Oakland,” built by the Messrs Pennell Brothers, al Brunswick, and how lying at Central wharf, is attracting a good deal of attention irom those interested in marine architect ure. But. two ships have ever been built in this state which equal her in beauty of finish and quality ot material, one at Belfast (the Ivanhoc) built in i860, and the other at Batli, recently launched. The Oakland rates Al lor nine years, by French Lloyds, and Al lor ten years by American Lloyds, with the highest marks, which is the best proof of her superior qual ities. She was built entirely ot white oak, every stek having been selected with I ho greatest care, and the work of putting together done in the best manner. All the modern improvements have been introduced in her construction to make her what she is, one of the best ships ever built in the State. Her rigging, which is done in iliebcst manner, was put up by Air William Reed, of Bath, Mr Fickett. of Portland, furnishing the sails, ant Mr Brower, ol Freeport, acting as master builder. She was built irom a model by the late Jas Pennell, and cost about #100,000. Her extreme Length on top is 195 feet, keel 180 feet, beam 37, depth 21 feet, and register about 1250 tons. She is owned by the Messrs Pennell, Capt A H Merryman, wrlio will command her. and others, and will proceed to a Southern 1 ort to load lor Eu rope.
